PowerPoint Presentation Included! The information contained in this resource and activity book follows a learning cycle that includes: a) free exploration by the students; b) expansion of exploration through activities that allow children to test, integrate, and sort out their discoveries; and c) application of concepts through individual and group projects which provide students with the opportunity to enhance and share what they have learned. Each section includes teacher resource material, planned lessons, suggested forest log entries, and expansion activities. In the Getting Started section, students will look at collected samples, books, magazines, and other resources. The display table's contents will motivate curiosity and questions. Watch carefully during this stage for high-interest items and concepts. Perhaps your class will want to explore in depth how a tree is home to many creatures, or examine the human connection to the forest. (32 pages, 4 PowerPoint slides)
